Today we had a nice sunny day on the Ocean!

We saw many groups of common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) and a group of striped dolphins (Stenella oeruleoalba) with a lot of juveniles!

This afternoon we had a happy encounter with a loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta)! We invited her on-board to check if it was possible to tag her for the projet COSTA. It was a juvenile turtle, but a little bit too small to be tagged. We only check if she was in a good shape and noticed a barnacle on her belly like on the picture.
